HAVE YOU WONDERERD,How to remove Spyware from your PC?

Here is the best way to detect and remove Spyware from your PC...

First off you will need these two programs...

1) Spybot's Search & Destroy available Here
http://www.safer-net...load/index.html

2) Lavasoft's Ad-Aware available Here
http://www.lavasoftusa.com/


Once you have downloaded and installed both of these then run them one at a time, firstly checking for any software updates

then running the programs to detect and safely remove any nasty Spyware.

Tips:
1, Run it on daily basis
2, Run it if you have recently visited porn site
3, If your internet is sluggish,it may help you navigate faster incase of spyware

Guru ji,
Thx for your valuable tips.

I just ran SPY BOT (and do update AVG 6.0 everyday but scan the system at least once in a month).

One query for you to get it solved -
I have set up Data Manager but whenever I finished running SPY BOT, it is thrown away to "VENUS" (may be to Mr. WNSO). And, again i need to set it up. Seems like data manager (that i have downloaded from your so called, Google.com) contains some titanus.

Data Manager is must for me as all my forthcoming informations/tasks are usually saved there so that I may get noticed every tasks in time.
Launa hajur!! yesko upachar ke holaa?

there really isn't any free things that take your headache away. some of free stuff works until it find the problem but tells user to buy full software if you want to remove problem. my advise is to buy spyremoving software and run it frequently, load it at startup.

I have recorded your IP, computer detail and ISP just in case... if i need them

Puter,

Like okinawa use AVG and spybot..they works perfectly ell on the end-user parts specially who are using it on home. I did test personally many anti-virus. I found AVG to be the best one for home user as it is already free.

plus, it consume less processing power of CPU, unlike norton who eats like half of the processing power alone.And in the field of spy/ad aware No other can beat ad-aware and spybot..

However if some spyware still persist. You can use HIJACK THIS which is kind of no-escape and accordingly we can delete spyware from regestry.

Okinawa,

LoL, problem is quite serious..I need more info..I am just wondering how long Mr wnso virus keep on spreading.. biggrin.gif

Hijackthis is a nice utility but it is bit complicated for new user, I mean who are not much familier with the registry.
If you select all and click on fix, then it will remove all. That can cause another problem also.

Adware and spybot are good because they are free but not good as other tools.

I used sometimes spysweeper which is really good but unfortunately it is not free. Having said that it doesn't mean it is not funtional. You can download and install. It works great till a certain time after that if you don't want to register just use adware and spyBot.

Anyway use spysweeper if you are having a problem. It is better that spybot or adware. After installing the software, click on update and click on Sweep all. It checks list everything it finds like spywares, trash files etc then you just have to click next.

Rajunpl,
i tried to solve the problem.... I think Spy Bot hates free downloaded stuff though Spy Bot is itself free one... kya jamaana aayo. Btw, it has got Windows 2000 (my lab pc, not home) where the problem (not actual problem) is. However, my real research work is in Linux, which is running smoothly. Here, i use vine-linux (jp version) and no problem at all till now. Anyway, thx bro.

Himal ji,
so u suggest for spysweepeer ? let me think and talk with another fellow in my lab.

PuTer,
How do you think by "the message that appears at the bottom of your post - giving detail of OS, IP and All" ?? U might be expert in that area. However, is it necessary, dude???
Donno what other members feel.
